Stage 12 of the 2019 Vuelta saw us pass the halfway mark in the race with a thriller of a finish in Bilbao. Philippe Gilbert (Deceuninck Quick-Step) powered to victory from the break. Behind the GC guys had another quiet day all coming in together just over 3 minutes behind.
Kathi, Midge and Euan look back on the first week of the Vuelta Espana and other happenings in the cycling world.
- We sing the praises of Scotland’s favourite drink
- Instant Karma’s gonna get you – yes you, Ineos
- Has the Vuelta been really great or really rubbish?
- Team of the week makes Euan a happy man
- Which rider has been making us swoon with admiration and barf with bad styling?
Plus the usual LOLs at Movistar, we love the man who loves the rain and farewell to a jolly nice man with jolly nice hair.
Stage 6 of the 2019 Vuelta and the shocks just keep on coming. Jesus Herrada finally won a stage for Cofidis, the red jersey changed hands again and a crash took away three top 20 GC riders.
